Lava lamp overheating chart

I’ve seen so picture charts with the different flows and if it’s to hot or cold  but the just right and the slightly too warm look the same to me in the pictures so I can never tell if/ when I should turn on my dimmers. What should I be looking for specifically and how much do I dim the lamps because sometimes I will turn the dimmer on and it stops flowing like it got to cold See More

"Hi Cate, are you going to make the shelves or buy ready-made?  If you make them (or have someone make them for you), you could install a trim piece on the front to hide the electrical.  That’s what we are considering too.  "

"It looks like it just cooled that way.  Try running the lamp for a few hours to allow for proper temperature before turning it off."

My current lamp set up isn’t much of a set up as it’s just 3( of six because I don’t have room for the rest)lamps siting in a cluster on my vanity/desk. But I’ve decided to change this because a it will look better and b I would like to be able to display all of my lamps.
